My first experience with interaction design goes as back as in the year 2000, where I had to develop the project web site, having the potential of reaching all Slovenian households (600.000). For the project we developed our own CMS. Since then, I have been working with all major CMSs, and developed along several custom based. Among them – the special interactive design system for the integrative annual reports – Vizuarna 365i. I was personally responsible for the product upgrade of the 2010.

Where I made the wireframes, flowcharts, and personas. Over the night literary.
